Help, I can't close the Skype window!

In 5.5.0.124, I can't figure out how to close the Skype window! Clicking Close just minimizes it. I've had to resort to the Task Manager to get rid of it, which is ridiculous. I must be missing something.

Re: Help, I can't close the Skype window!

The only way to stop Skype from running on your computer is by using the Quit option. On all Windows systems the Quit option is available from the Skype icon in the system try. Right click on this icon and select Quit. On Windows 7 only, the Quit option is also available from the Skype icon in the taskbar. However, due to a bug in Skype 5.5/5.6 versions, this option (Quit from taskbar icon) is only available if UAC is enabled in Windows. This bug is now corrected in the latest Skype 5.7 Beta release.

Why can't I close Skype on my Mac?? i click on the red close icon, and it won't work, i just get a 'beep'. Under the skype menu, the quit skype selection is grey, so not an option. i cannot change my status from online to off-line. i cannot answer a call !!! worst of all, i cannot close my computer down as it keeps asking me to quit the skype application - and i cannot. Aaaaaaaah, tearing my hair out here.
